Best time of year to visit DR?

Recommended Posts

I'd say it depends on your price range!

 

But I'm partial to the Dreams chain. They have fantastic 5* service, BEEEEUTIFUL rooms (all of them), great food, no reservations for any of the a la cartes, no annoying wristbands (which can ruin a wedding picture) and all of this for very reasonable prices! Check them out and pm me if you have any questions. I have been to all the Dreams resorts in Dominican Republic so I can share my experiences.

Hey ladies. Very sorry to bump a thread but I didn't want to start a new one on a similar topic.

 

I have been looking at a May wedding. However, there's really not much stopping us from doing it in April instead. I want to go during a month when the weather is not prime (and thus, skyhigh) but not rainy/hot either (late summer).

 

Would there be a big different in price between April and May? What about weather?

We are getting married at the end of June for reasons already mentioned -- we have teachers in our family, and also it is still before hurricaine season!! The weather is supposed to be great, and I have never been on a caribbean vacation where there wasn't a little rain (5-10 minutes at night to cool down the temperature). It's expected, and I would not stress too much about the time of year.

I'm actually going there in 3 weeks!! I heard the weather is wonderful!

We are getting married at the Bavaro Princess as were were at their other location in Riviara Mya Mexico 2 yrs ago and loved it. Although I was first sold on Dream (Beautiful) and also the RIU. Both were beautiful but the overall cost was a little pricier than what we had in mind for our guests.

All-in-all I believe it will be wonderful:)

Please let me know how it is! I'm getting married at the Bavaro Princess in April! I also was sold on the dream resort but it was too pricey for guests. I never see anyone on here that gets married there! Good luck I hope everything is perfect : )

hello!

My fiance and I were planning on a November 2010 wedding in the DR. Does anyone know if it is a risky month to book a wedding?

Also, anyone have travel agents to recommend for Toronto area? (we are coordinating from Vancouver but Toronto is where most of our family/guests will be flying out of) Thanks in advance!

I am sure October is the best bang for your buck because that is the heart of hurricane season. No one knows when or how many hurricanes we will get a seasons. I might lower your guest number, because people could be worried about traveling down there during that time!

Actually, according to the website October is the best bang for your buck because while it's considered within hurricane season, it is actually at the end of it. I wouldn't consider it bang for your buck if hurricane risk is at its highest. That would just be getting what you paid for. wink.gif

Well I guess that is true if you go at the end of Oct. I live in Houston, Texas and all the Major storms that hit us and areas around us are at the end of Sept. So if there is any damage they might not be to fit or repair the damage that fast. Ike hit Houston on Sept 13 and we were with out power in my area for 10 days. Thats just the power. I wouldn't run the risk, but alot of people do. Hurricanes were one stress I didn't want to have because noone knows when or where they are going to hit and can change at a drop of a dime.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
